Movie Reviews

V. Romo | San Francisco, CA | 07/17/2005
(1 out of 5 stars)

"All i have to say is this movie was not very good period and even having Jessica Alba in it doesn't help as she's in the movie for like one scene that lasts maybe 2minutes. I'd pass on this movie."
Poor plot, poor acting, poor FX
J. Houzet | Chicago, IL | 08/10/2005
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Venus Rising is a thriller set in the near future, where an island prison has been abandoned by the authorities and the inmates left to starve. Years later, three inmates make an escape from the island and find themselves on Pacifica, an island paradise where bored rich people find stimulation in virtual reality. Murder and identity switching ensue, as the authorities hunt for the escapees.
This movie basically steals plot elements from Wild Palms and Strange Days and does a worse job than either of those two movies. For a start, the acting is weak, with a bunch of third tier talent like Billy Wirth and Costas Mandylor. Morgan Fairchild serves no purpose in this movie. The only actor with some salt was Audie England, whose only other roles seem to be in Zalman King type erotica.
This movie also obviously had a lousy budget. Even the scenes where they are meant to be entering virtual reality are hokey."

"The story is a bit thin. Audie England's character (Eve) escapes from some kind of prison - the kind where the prison keepers don't even know who they're keeping, and the kind with a high-tech alarm system with more holes than a Swiss cheese. Even with that kind of start, the strain on one's credulity just keeps getting worse as the movie rolls on.

The biggest attraction may be in the moments when Audie appears wearing only Audie - and I have to say she wears it well. Those scenes are much too brief to make up for the weaknesses elsewhere in the movie, though. I wouldn't run if I saw this movie being shown again, but I probably wouldn't pay much attention, either.

"This film was a waste of time. I skimmed through looking for someone I was led to believe played in it, but did not!
I'd give it 0 stars if I could. The acting was pitiful, at best."
